If you are suffering from jaw pain, a “popping jaw”, or any other jaw-related sensitivity, it is important to seek treatment from a reputable dental provider as soon as possible to rule out any serious causes. While most jaw pain is the result of teeth grinding and other normal activities, there are a few more serious conditions marked by jaw pain and popping. At Walding & Associates, we are experienced in treating a range of jaw conditions and provide our patients with an innovative TMJ treatment to help alleviate their jaw pain and discomfort.
At Walding & Associates, you will receive a wide range of recommendations as part of your TMJ treatment plan. Recommendations will typically include:
In addition to providing you with a list of activities to avoid and over-the-counter TMJ treatment options to try, Walding & Associates also uses Botox as part of our comprehensive TMJ treatment plan for those with severe TMJ. Botox works by relieving the jaw tension, eliminating headaches and jaw pain as a result. With just 1 injection, many patients notice a significant improvement in their jaw-related pain and discomfort.
Occasionally, our experienced dentists will determine other factors are contributing to a patient’s jaw pain. At times, untreated cavities and other dental issues can exacerbate the problem. In those instances, we will often recommend a cavity filling or other dental procedure to rid the mouth of any harmful bacteria and bring healing to the tissues surrounding the jaw.
Whether you require a cavity filling, dental crown, root canal, dental bridge or any other dental treatment or procedure, you will always be in good hands at Walding & Associates. We gladly welcome patients from Auburndale, Crystal Lake, Lake Wales, Lakeland Highlands, Plant City and beyond, so contact us today if you think you are suffering from TMJ. Our office staff will work quickly and efficiently to schedule an appointment with our dentist, so you can determine if TMJ treatment is right for you. Our professional dental team will be able to determine if you are a good candidate and whether you need a cavity filling or any other dental treatment or procedure to fully alleviate your jaw pain.
